China announces development of a new generation of fighters

China has begun to develop a new carrier-based fighter, which in future should replace the J-15.

The development of the carrier-based fighter will begin this year, and the company announces its intention to “achieve a breakthrough” in the program to develop fifth-generation fighters. According to the developers’ plans, the aircraft will be ready by mid-2030.

Shenyang Aircraft Ltd. has not specified development details, but it is likely that the new carrier fighter will be built on the basis of the FC-31 (J-31) fifth generation fighter that the company has already developed.
